(1) This extraordinary optical illusion was produced by Qinetic's image processing group at Malvern. If you stare at the picture long enough, eventually a helicopter and a penguin become visible!

(2) Bob's first wish, about turning the boss into a penguin, had worked out nicely, but he regretted his careless terminology for the second one.

Erm, would I have to get my coat if I concocted a sentence including the words 'probed' and 'behind'? Thought so, so I'll content myself with the following:

Boeing had yet to iron out the inherent c of g problem. A spokesman gave the following quote:
"Those designers are a bunch of tit$!"

Boom boom.

Hmm. Where did I put the cloakroom ticket?

Edited for too much alcohol-induced grammar...

The Hooters Girls decided to take the 'sitting on the washing machine' experiment that one step too far!

"B*ll*cks", said the penguin, "I wished for Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs, not Snow White & the Seven Dwrafs"

Trinny and Susannah's makeover of the Greenham Wimmin was judged to be a complete success.

How about

'Captain, Front Stbd optical sensor shows 14 wobbly pink targets'

Melt my belly down and make 20 'Hooters'

Harking back, for a moment, to the first round: shamelessly building on aa's concept and TA's winning entry, I messed around with Paint last night: http://tinypic.com/pvbih

Back to the current round:


Six of the girls were delighted, but Mandy was annoyed and she didn\'t care who knew it. She\'d been promised a ride on the biggest chopper she\'d ever seen, and this wasn\'t she\'d had in mind.

Despite the MOD's success in dealing with the BSE outbreak, the Department of Health felt inclined to decline the RAF's offer of a Mobile Rapid Mass Cervical Screening Unit to counter the increasing incidence of Chlamydia.

OK it's been up for a couple of days and since An Teallach has resorted to Viz for suggestions, the results are now in....
I always knew the photo would provoke a whole host of "Hooters girls being probed" responses, but the one I liked most, with it's reference to the mysterious presence of the penguin with some very subtle yet implied lewdness at the same time is..........









"Bob's first wish, about turning the boss into a penguin, had worked out nicely, but he regretted his careless terminology for the second one."

Step forward, ADR. You've won a PPRuNe pencil.

Damn, too late to add my " failed OCU ideas for keeping Blogg's eyes outside the cockpit" line...

... so what was going on? What is a Hooter? And please, someone clear up what the Penguin is doing there. Surely the night vision kit on the MH47E has got beyond Gentoo by now?

Go HERE for a lesson.

Cheap beer, nice food, pleasant surroudings, unintrusive music in the background, convenient locations in all major US cities (and Nottingham in the UK )....think that's about it for appeal really.

Woo-hoo! I won! Marvellous. Thank you! Will my pencil be with me in 28 working days?

I've stuck a captioned version of the photo online here.

I suppose it's up to me, then, to provide a picture for the next round. Not easy on the eye like the last one, sadly, but this picture is begging for a caption:



Let the entries roll in!

Bloke on right is thinking "why does the test pilot always stand there with the end of the 500gal drop tank up his ar*e".

Going back to the original picture the guy is saying "once you end up working for a proper airline some bod from the handling agent comes and plugs this in".

For the chinook one i think the penguin is saying "dont know why you are all staring at them when there is a naked one just inside the doorway....."
